Hare Wynn Courtroom Dedicated at Cumberland School of Law | Hare Wynn Newell & Newton

February 18, 2013 – Hare Wynn’s partnership with the Cumberland School of Law was recently recognized during the dedication of the Hare, Wynn, Newell & Newton Advanced Advocacy Courtroom. Hare Wynn’s on-going financial support is providing state of the art training for Cumberland law students in a world-class advanced teaching courtroom at Cumberland.

During the dedication, Hare Wynn partner, Scott Powell, a 1978 graduate of Cumberland School of Law, said, “Hare Wynn’s gift represents our commitment to strengthen the legal profession and matches the vision of those who founded the firm more than a century ago.”

The new facility will further enhance the school’s ability to compete with other law schools throughout the country. In 2012, U.S. News & World Report ranked Cumberland School of Law fourth among all U.S. law schools for its trial advocacy program.

Judge Joel Dubina, a 1973 graduate of Cumberland School of Law and Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, was the featured speaker at the dedication ceremony. Judge Dubina thanked Hare Wynn for supporting his alma mater and for investing in the education of Cumberland’s future law graduates.
